Riffs Ep 4 – What Do Hedge Fund Managers Spend on Technology?

Set aside some time to watch Alphacution Riffs Ep 4 wherein we walk through the foundational hypothesis; key highlights; an extraordinary case study involving Citadel, Millennium Management, Point72 and Vanguard (teaser); and, the strategy behind the release of our latest – and, most impactful – study to date, “The Context Machine: Estimating Asset Manager Technology Spending” (April 2018).

And, for those of you with a slightly longer attention span, stick around for another “public service announcement” at the end of this one (starting around 11:17) – as we did in the Director’s Cut for  Ep 3 – Proprietary Trading, Extreme Automation.

The urge to provide value to the human capital component (i.e. – you, me, and everyone in our audience and beyond) – which is actually coming to life as a direct result of our technology focus – seems to be gaining momentum…


And, as always, if you value this work: Like it, share it, comment on it – or discuss amongst yourselves –  and then send us feedback@alphacution.com.

As our “feedback loop” becomes more vibrant – given input from clients and other interested parties, especially around new questions to be answered – the value of this work will accelerate.

Don’t be shy…
